Pond water

Posted: 17/06/2017 at 11:48

i used water cress when I first started mine, just until everything settled, I bought a bag from the supermarket and just threw it in. It made its own roots and soon spread, it didn't last though the winter, but by then the pond had established.

i do agree with Pete and A who said about not using the vinegar, and the pond will settle, not over night though๐Ÿ™‚

Wilko tomato grow bags

Just fold 6" inches down from the top Tina, as you said, perfect job. At that price they are very good.

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

Tight curl on top leaves of tomato plants - what might be the cause?

Posted: 17/06/2017 at 00:21

dont worry about that at all, it's because they are hot and conserving energy, I have one particular strain that do that, as they grow, those leaves straighten out and the next lot out will curl, absolutely nothing to worry about. 

When little green tomatoes form, give a feed of Tomorite or similar, anything low on Nitrogen, all that will do is produce lots of green leaves and not flowers.

Dove and I both said this  on another thread.

It's 3 mts for a stake the size papa Jo made, that would be better for me. Nice long legs on that one.

i just laid my rods on the lawn, picked up one end and curved it over till it met the other end, then stood on it to make the legs . Didn't have a tree or a workmate.

But the OP has got the plant she ordered.  surely the company are not obliged to give the money back.

I don't think it's happy in that little inner pot.

This weekend my biggest hosta is for the compost, it's 5' wide much to rampant.

All of my Tithonias, of all the thousands of seeds I sow every year, these are a disaster., 

I'm like Raisingirl, if it grows for me, I like it.๐Ÿ™‚

Can't see your pic, but it sounds like mite galls. Have a google and see what you think.
If it is, they may not look nice, but wont do any harm to your willow unless it has other problems or is very young
